Safe Routes to School

The Safe Routes to School Program encourages students and families to get to school by means other than a car. San Mateo has adopted the 6 E's to create a successful program:
  • Education: Pedestrian and bicycling safety workshops
  • Encouragement: Student incentives to promote participation
  • Engineering: Infrastructure improvements to support safe school commutes
  • Enforcement: In coordination with the San Mateo Police Department, ensure laws are followed to keep all school travelers safe.
  • Evaluation: Conduct student travel tallies and parent surveys to assess school commute patterns
  • Equity: Support safe, active, and healthy school commute options for all community members
